The good news is that “password” is not any longer the most-popular password on the internet. Password management firm SplashData released its annual list of the worst passwords of the year and it's even as dreadful as you'd suppose. the company, that analyzed the three million passwords leaked on-line last year, disclosed that the most common leaked password in 2014 was "123456," followed by "password"

Last year, ‘password’ topped the list so i guess we will able to find some little progress within the fact that most of the people are simply typing integers as their passwords as against robotically typing in the worst password you may ever use. Heck, we’re even using ‘dragon,’ a symbol of strength and fiery payback that is, sadly, additionally a horrible password.

Companies like Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and Apple are currently trying to create hacking more difficult on their services by offering two-factor authentication, which is essentially like double lockup your door at night. Every time you want to log into that account, the company will send a code to your phone — it changes when every login attempt, after hackers would have to be in physical possession of your Smartphone to understand the code.
